Vom Benza Haus Shepherds / sick puppy
The breeder feeds the puppies ground up raw chicken and bones. When we brought our puppy home she had diarrhea and vomiting on the first day. We suspected it was the stress and just kept her meal light that night. The next day started with bloody diarrhea and continued vomiting. She couldn't hold anything down. We took her to the vet who gave her some fluids to prevent dehydration and advised to keep on a bland diet. The vomiting continued that night and we brought her back to the vet who then x-rayed her and saw the bones logged in her intestines. They kept her there for monitoring and later advised she was hemorrhaging and they needed to go in to remove the bones. We attempted several times to contact the breeder through all this and our calls went mostly unanswered. She later left a voicemail advising us to give the pup a laxative. I emailed her requesting reimbursement of the vet bills (in excess of $1, 200) with the details of what occurred and that it was undoubtedly the bones she was feeding to the pup and never a response. Not even to inquire as to how the pup was doing. The website and her paperwork indicate a 3 day health guarantee, but that is obviously crap.
